Toolbars in only B&W??? RRS feed

  • Question

  • 2013 really is not an advance--stick with older versions.  The 2013 is not worth the $$.  For example one can only get the tool bars in B&W and that is hard for me to read in comparison to colors.  THe help menus were put together by some grade schooler!!!

  • My first impression was similar but after about five minutes, I really found the B/W buttons easier to find and describe, the old colored icons were kind of a visual mess.

    The new ones are a lot cleaner and when doing training, I find it's now easier and faster for people to find the buttons.

    Anyway, you're right that it's only a cosmetic change and was probably would not have been the MapPoint Team's own priority - likely dictated on high by higher ups at Microsoft to standardize around the "Metro" or modern interface style.

    The "Show Name" option in the Legend to show only the single line balloon is a nice new feature in MapPoint 2013.
